Industry Expert and WhatTheyThink Contributor Andy Tribute to Moderate

Lexington, Kentucky USA -- WhatTheyThink.com today announced the opportunity for industry professionals to attend a free printing industry educational webinar. High Speed Low Cost Inkjet: What It Could Mean for Your Production Color Applications, which will be led by industry expert Andrew Tribute, WhatTheyThink Contributor and founder of Attributes Associates.  Sponsored by RISO, the event will be held Wednesday, November 18th, from 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST (-5 GMT).

No-charge registration is available here.

“Most of the buzz about the impact of inkjet printing and the major advances in inkjet technology have centered around high-end equipment,” said Tribute.  “In this session, we will discuss overall trends in the inkjet market, but will include new trends and opportunities in the mid-range that might allow smaller businesses to take advantage of this emerging market.”

Tribute will be joined by

·     Carl Gallo of StationAmerica.  StationAmerica has been in the business of servicing customers’ printing and supplies needs since 1988, focusing primarily on the financial markets. Forms management and print-on-demand services have been an integral part of its business growth. StationAmerica provides mailing services and coupon services to accompany traditional forms printing and commercial printing. The company has nine employees with over 50 years of collective experience.

·     Penni Istre, University of Memphis Print Services.  Penni began her career in printing in 1983 in Lake Charles, LA. She is currently working on her BA in Print Systems Management from the University of Memphis. Penni worked at the University of Tennessee, Memphis, for 11 years in the Prepress Department of Graphics Services and then moved on to Kinko's to increase her knowledge of digital printing. After spending 3.5 years with Kinko's, Penni brought her skills to The University of Memphis in March of 2003.

“Many smaller companies are looking for ways to get involved in inkjet,” said Randy Davidson, President, WhatTheyThink. “But there have been significant investment and other barriers to entering that market.  In this session, we hope to shed new light on how developments in inkjet technology will affect a larger swath of the market, moving volume from both electrophotographic and offset processes.  We appreciate RISO sponsoring this event so that we present it at no charge.”

Attendees will be able to participate in a live question and answer session to get the most from the experience and will be able to view and listen to the presentation using a standard Internet browser with audio streamed via computer.
